We highly encourage cycling shoes for the best ride, but running shoes will work. Clipped in you’ll feel more stable on the bike, you'll be able to work the whole pedal stroke, plus the bonus of looking totally pro. We have a very nice selection of shoes for sale in all studios and rental shoes at our Russian Hill location.
Our pedals accept SPD-style cleats, but they also work with trainers or running shoes in case you didn’t read the first sentence. Seriously, though, cycling shoes are the way to go.
